Armani hotel opening delayed due to volcanic ash disruption

April 19- The opening of the world’s ‘highest hotel’, the Armani Hotel Dubai, in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, will be postponed because of fallout from the volcanic eruption in Iceland last week.  The hotel was scheduled to open on April 21st, but this has now been postponed to April 27th because the man the hotel is name after, Giorgio Armani, can’t make the opening date due to disruption in international flights. 

A spokesperson for The Armani Hotel Dubai said in a statement “Due to the unforeseen closure of European Aerospace and the subsequent cancellation of international flights, the much anticipated grand opening of Armani Hotel Dubai has been postponed.”  The hotel is the first to be launched under the collaboration between Giorgio Armani S.p.A. and Emaar Properties PJSC.  The Armani Hotel Dubai has 160 rooms and covers 269,000 square feet across the concourse, ground floors, level 1 through 8, and levels 38 and 39 of the Burj Khalifa.
